Embassy Suites hotel renovations on schedule despite weather

By  | 

ROCKFORD, Ill. (WIFR) -- The historic renovation on the Embassy Suite Hotel and Conference Center is fully underway.

Although winter weather has made construction a little more difficult, project leaders say renovation is right on schedule. Windows are installed, and elevators are being added. The indoor pool and rooftop bar are also in the works.

"It's going to have an industrial chic look to it, and most of the windows in the rooms are floor to ceiling windows," said Steve Morgan, regional director of Gorman & Company. "You're going to have awesome views of downtown Rockford, the Rock River and Main Street."

Morgan says people have already reached out on Wedding Wire and Hotel Planner to coordinate weddings and meetings at the Embassy Suites.

Interviews for hospitality positions begin in April. The hotel is set to open April 1, 2020.
